I have been encouraging my sister in-law, Mary to make some things to put on Etsy. She recently took a trip to KY to see the in-laws and Judy taught her how to make lye soap. I told her to wrap some up and I would put it on my Etsy store to see if we can sell any of it.
She also made an adorable tooth fairy pillow for her daughter Emily. I asked her to make one for Joshua. He will be losing a tooth soon. (I will post a picture of his in a later post). She is in the process of making a few to put on Etsy. They are just so cute. Her mother made some for her and her sister when they were little.It is completely hand sewn. Even the pocket.
Isn’t it adorable?
You can see the listing in my Etsy store.
Oh and on a sewing note, I made one block for a swap. Woo Hoo!!!
The picture is a little blurry. It is for a swap. Using the Tennessee pattern. I have 5 more to make. It felt great to sew.
One year ago today my beautiful baby boy came into the world. What a blessing from God. We are truly blessed.
I just joined this swap. It sounds like it is going to be a lot of fun. I have been wanting to make a mini quilt for a long time. If you want to join too the sign ups run through the 4th of May.
We missed the school picures in the fall. For some reason they take pictures in the spring too. So we made sure to order some this time. He doesn’t like the picture. It looks good. It is hard to believe he is 14 and will be wanting to drive next year. Woe is me.
Andrew will be one on Saturday. It is so hard to believe. This year has just flown by. I don’t want him to grow up. He is so adorable just the way he is.
I don’t have any sewing news or pictures to share so I thought I would share a couple of pictures I just took of Andrew. Here he is happy as can be playing away.
Opps I fell on my bum. It is amazing how quickly they go from a smile to a frown. Those pesky one year molars are driving him crazy. You can see one there on the left. It started coming through in the last two days. The bottom right one started coming through today. He has a place where it is all swollen and looks painful. Poor little guy.
Use peanut butter it worked great. I started at the top and slowly worked it in and it came off really easy. It was stuck on very well. Poor little guy. Now he smells like a nutter butter.
The kids had a blast yesterday. Emily came over and the kids hunted egs in the front yard. It was so much fun. It looked like the Easter Bunny exploded in our front yard. Andrew watched the older kids. Next year her will be hunting for sure.
